Annabel has developed a successful media career, initially as the face of Channel 4’s Treasure Hunt and ITV’s Interceptor. She has also taken part in a series of the award winning Filthy Rich and Homeless for BBC, where she lived homeless on the streets of London for 9 days. Annabel also hosted her own series, The Flying Picnic.
